Castello: "Castello" Bent Pot (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-1458
A describer's first contact with a pipe often comes in the form of a title appearing in our input screen, and this briar was titled "Castello" paneled Billiard. So me thinks "Cool, a 15-Q, been a good while since I was able to describe one". Then I saw the shape, the iconic 55, albeit a slightly different-than-the-norm execution, and I brightened a bit more. While I enjoy both forms, I can't think of any shape interpretation that is more "Castello" (so to speak), than the 55 (hence, the iconic). The Castello grade stain comes in a couple of flavors, the medium walnut, and a darker version of the same hue: both have their fans. If the darker stain is more to your liking, this would make for a fine acquisition.
